Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

'Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.' ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church (675)

Guild Coverage of the Shadow Synod

Nicolas Bellord, writing for The Guild of Blessed Titus Brandsma, has completed a comprehensive and enlightening analysis of the 'Shadow Synod', containing the kind of arguments and...ahem, 'theology' the Church can expect to be presented in October. It is a great read but because of the subject matter you might want to pour yourself a brandy because if this is the kind of stuff that will be presented at the Synod on the Family...well...

The excellent 8-part analysis is written in separate posts which can be read as follows...

And having read that, most readers will want to pray the Novena to St Michael the Archangel for Holy Mother Church. The novena goes from September 20 to September 29, starting today.

May God have mercy on us all.

And what an eye-opener it's been. A stupendous piece of work by Nicolas Bellord, as I am sure our own Cardinal Nichols who was there, would agree.

What is the point in praying if this is The Church. Didn't God already promise that the gates of hell wouldn't prevail? Should not one who believes in the Church simply rest in God's promises? That's what my conservative Novus Ordite friends are telling me.

@Unknown, i.e. Seattle Kim,

Get yerself some new friends.

If that is what your spiritually slothful friends are telling you, then why pray to God for anything? Why fast? The answer (as I'm sure you well know) is abundantly obvious throughout Church teaching, doctrine, and Scripture.

There is a temporary relief of sorts for those who will suffer from the bile this Synod will produce.
